Tennessee Divorce Attorneys Creatively Manage High Net-Worth Divorces

Proven experience with high-stakes divorce proceedings since 1996

Divorces are not easy. Each couple is unique and faces many challenges when ending the union. However, the more marital assets involved, the more difficult a divorce can be. Determining how to divide the assets, terms of alimony or spousal support, and child custody can be extremely complicated and passionately-contested as the financial stakes are raised.

In order to ensure your rights and financial well-being are protected, it is important to work with an attorney with a comprehensive understanding of divorce proceedings and extensive experience with high net-worth divorces. At the Law Office of David L. Scott, we offer the experience and support you need to protect your interests and ensure your fair share of the family assets in your divorce.

What is divided in a high net worth divorce?

A high net-worth divorce does not simply mean more money to split; there can be value in a wide range of assets that must be accounted for and equitably divided. Our Murfreesboro divorce attorney, David L. Scott, can help you throughout the entire process of the divorce, from identification of property, to negotiating division of assets, to mediation or litigation if necessary. Among the types of property to consider in a high net worth divorce are:

  • Liquid cash assets

  • Investments and investment accounts

  • Real estate

  • Vehicles, jewelry and other personal assets

  • Family businesses

  • Retirement accounts

  • Debt, liens and liabilities

Financial security for your future is of the utmost importance, and if you choose David L. Scott to handle your high net worth divorce, you can rest assured that you can rest assured that you have a firm negotiator and staunch advocate in your corner fighting to ensure you receive your fair division of the marital assets.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Many high net worth individuals will utilize a prenuptial (before marriage) agreement to outline division of assets. These are often upheld in Tennessee, particularly if each party “entered into it freely, knowledgeably, in good faith, and without exertion of duress or undue influence upon either spouse.” However, if assets were hidden during the prenuptial agreement, that may cast doubt on its validity.

Some spouses also utilize postnuptial agreements, which are similar to a prenuptial agreement, but entered into once already married.  These documents are legal in Tennessee, however it is important that both parties understood the agreement and that consideration exists for both parties beyond the marriage itself.
